There is no shortage of opinions in the mixed martial arts world when it comes to the controversial subject of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).

Over the last few years, the procedure has become a hot-button subject among promoters, journalists and fighters alike as the debate rages on whether the practice of TRT should be legal and allowed (as it is now, so long as it is approved by an athletic commission) or is essentially legal cheating.

Chael Sonnen is one of the fighters who was at the forefront of the TRT controversy after divulging he was prescribed the therapy by his doctor after they found he had dangerously low levels of testosterone being produced by his body naturally.

TRT has its place. this is just jones trying to take shots at chael. the best thing he can do right now is keep his mouth shut, focus on the upcoming TUF, then beat sonnen in the cage. trash talking will get him no where.

Young JJ does realize that he will be taking TRT in about 3 years when he decides to NOT chicken out and move up to HW.......ahh, Bonesy-Boy has so much to learn.

Didn't Rampage and Frank Mur speak out against it? Ohhh wait, they have taken it to, riiight?

You have a point, Jones is young so the cut isnt effecting him but if he stays at 205 which he has stated he wont but it could effect him later on his career. cutting weight just destroys your inside if you do it constantly

I agree with Jones for once.

TRT is legal steroids.
